I think the main problem with plugins like these is that it’s taking a backwards approach to “smart plugins.” I don’t think it makes sense to try to make an algorithm mix like a person, because there’s too much variability in how that’s done. [/quote]
Isn’t that what complex AI algorithms account for though? Think about how much variation there is in human speech, but voice recognition software manages to consolidate patterns of consonants and vowels into words and sentences based on the common thread between words in a similar language. I know that detecting speech is different than treating it, but couldn’t you take the same wave form analysis that you’d run in Rosetta Stone or Amazon Alexa and use that to drive responses to a piece of software in a DAW?
Remember that last thread where AJ told me I needed to dump swatches of 400hz in a vocal? Why couldn’t a computer figure that out and do it for you? If he can hear it, surely an AI can…the question then isn’t hearing it. Its knowing what to do with it…right?
There may already be something like that out there, but I’d bet a lot of money that if someone made a filter that analyzed a body shape then ~removed~ a bra, it’d quickly become the most pirated software on the planet.
Do you think that might just have to do with demand?
So the software that’s already out there can go head to head with any human, but only in areas of music where the rules are clearly defined. So these things can write inventions, fugues, toccatas, in the style of Bach, Handel, or Vivialdi based on the hundreds of works we have from them.
As for pop/rock/country/blues stuff…there’s already stuff on the market that can make suggestions. Hell…band in a box did that.
Hell dude…I suck at writing lyrics. I would love to have a computer spit out lyrics to a melody I write, then be able to sell and license them without having to pay a co-writer on the split sheet.
Why would it be good at that vs listening to a mishmash of frequencies then creating an EQ for it?
What’s the difference? I mean…not with EZdrummer or EZkeys, but the difference between an AI and something that has a hard coded performance?
